Raspberry Bourbon Smash – your new favorite cocktail! Raspberry jam, orange juice, bourbon, and orange liqueur smashed together and served over ice.
The week is half over!
That means we can have cocktails, right?
Guys, I have had a week.
And by a week, I mean all of 2016.
Is it over yet?
Let me tell you about my new favorite cocktail.
I bought a bottle of bourbon months ago for a recipe and have been trying to get rid of it ever since. Which explains why I’ve only had bourbon cocktails on the blog this year (margaritas coming soon, I promise!) but omg, it’s the neverending bottle of bourbon.
Okay, so, this Raspberry Bourbon Smash recipe may look weird because it starts with jam.
But I promise it works!
I was worried it would be super sweet but it really wasn’t. And the jam didn’t give it a weird texture or anything. I really enjoyed it and would totally make it again. I think this would be the perfect poolside drink and I bet you could even use fresh raspberries once berries are in season again!
(The cute little square ice cubes are made with these trays. I’m obsessed.)
